Artist Sam Chacon was born & raised in Southern California. Due to his father being an artist all his life, he mentored Sam in the world of art & helped surface his artistic abilities. To this day, they both exchange art ideas & paint together when time allows. Sam first picked up a tattoo machine a little more than 5 years ago & has never looked back. Tattooing has become part of his lifestyle & he wouldn’t have it any other way. Having worked at a handful of great tattoo shops throughout the years, he has learned valuable tattooing techniques from amazing tattoo artists. Sam specializes in high-end custom tattoos & portraits, though he also loves when clients let him freehand a tattoo as well.
“In these days & times, the tattoo industry is filled to the brim with tattoo artists. It is definitely hard to find a genuine artist to share your vision. Sam has been tattooing me for 2 years now & I recommend him to every one of my friends. He is such an amazing artist & sees what you are envisioning & brings it to life with his amazing ability!” - Lisa Gonzalez
